Book Club

AGLCA Book Club

The AGLCA Book Club is yet another opportunity to engage in a fun and rewarding activity with your AGLCA friends. We meet monthly, usually on the second Wednesday of each month, at various members' homes, for food & drink and a lively discussion of that month’s selected book. We don't discriminate when it comes to the range of genres we read – from classic literature to best selling novels to biographies to histories to graphic novels to plays!

Contact book club coordinator John J. Williams Jr. at williams-shea@usa.net for more information on the AGLCA book club.
